    I've been listening to it a lot since it came out, and even though it didn't blow me away instantly, I love it now.

    It takes a while to truly take off, somewhere around the second chorus, and then it becomes truly magical and mesmerising.

    It definitely fits well with Marina's story and musical growth, and feels like a natural continuation of her previous albums that marks a sort of coming into her own. Love the dreamy, self-reflecting and hopeful vibe of the song. For some reason it sounds like a classic song to me, something Madonna would release around RoL.

    The small number of views (+ Baby flopping earlier) doesn't give me much hope in the chart success of this song, but I thought that she had a large enough fanbase to at least get some initial online hype which would reflect in the Youtube views.

    I think she’s about 3 months too late with this.

    it would have been so fitting around Christmas time.

    500,000 on the first day isn’t bad imo, although I’m sure it’ll slow down. Don’t forget it’s been 4 years since Froot & even then the most watched video is Blue with 12 million

    I originally loved the song but I am mesmerized by it now. It is truly a masterpiece. She never disappoints. (Although I do hear a mix of Valley of The Dolls and I'm a Ruin in this).

    This explains well how I feel about this song. It's a beautiful amalgamation of her three albums. Sure, it feels like something Marina has done before, but she's executed it very well.

    As for the music video, there are a lot of stunning shots, but I'm not a fan of the different shots layering over one another. That technique cheapens the video a little.

    Ok this is my all time fave by her now. This is one of the best songs I have ever heard. I can’t cope with the second chorus. It tears me to pieces

    ^ I'm feeling completely different, sadly. This is one of her weakest singles ever to me. Actually the weakest since her debut era.

    This is SUCH a grower. I did think it was beautiful at first, but the more I have heard it the more I have started to love it. Up to the point where the song is constantly in my head and I realise she once again proved why she is my favourite singer and songwriter.

    I wish I could say it’s a grower but unfortunately it ranks below most of Marina‘s songs.

    I appreciate the fact that it’s much more enjoyable than BABY though.

    However, it does not stand a chance beside giants like Immortal, Obsessions, Radioactive and many more.

    Well she did say the rest of the album sounds nothing like this song so, they are just testing waters. We will get a second single very soon.

    I'd rather the album to be more like this than Baby (which she said was included). Otherwise the album could be all over the place.

    I‘d be gutted if BABY is a (prominent) part of this project.

    This is stunning!

    Didn't realize how much I missed her until I heard this song.
    Absolutely angelic and atmospheric.

    I listened to it repeatedly while in a car wash and went from thinking it was nice enough to a transcendent masterpiece so much so that it didn't bother me that I had left my car aerial screwed on and had it snapped in two by the overzealous flappy spinners.

    Your first post in 9 years and you quoted me! BACK.

    I do need to give it another chance, if only for the sake of your car aerial.
